If the Smash thing doesn’t work out for the ladies, someone needs to cast this lovely trio for a musical incarnation of Charlie’s Angels. Can’t you just picture them parading around in glittery dresses belting out tunes while solving Broadway-related crimes? I can ;) Can’t be worse than ABC’s failed reboot of the iconic 70s series last year.

Entertainment Weekly tapped Katharine McPhee, Megan Hilty and Jennifer Hudson for their Winter Television Preview issue. Say what you will about American Idol being irrelevant, but the show does discover and create stars. Pretty amazing that two alums were picked to grace the cover instead of a long list of other stars including Oscar and Emmy winners. Check out more photos of each of the ladies below.

Don’t forget to tune in on February 5 to watch the second season premiere of Smash. For inside the making (and remaking) of Smash, click here. For behind the scenes scoop on the photo shoot, click here.
